Just got word that Kohl is going to announce his retirement. My source tells me The Hedgehog Report broke the story. Still trying to find it.

Yeah, I wanted to work that into the title then realized there will be more than enough posts about him here.

Looks like this class of Senators really isn't wasting any time this cycle.

Do Wisconsin Dems have anyone else to really look forward to? Tongue

Probably not....and he wouldn't be a bad choice even, strategically.

Ron Kind would be my pick, seeing as how Feingold has no ability to hold down a seat.

I actually like Feingold but I think it would be hilarious to see the reaction here if he ran in the primary . . . and lost.

Hardly a Republican lock at this point, in a presidential year, the Democrat is going to have an upper hand. Wisconsin might have voted Republican in 2010, but I don't see that as a long term trend.

Admittedly, I have to agree with this. The Wisconsin GOP has literally just formed a bench, as far as I can tell, so unless they pull out another Ron Johnson out of nowhere, this one is far from a lock - especially if Feingold jumps in. I do, however, still think it'll be close, whoever ends up winning.

So I have to assume that Ryan is likely to run for this one, if KP is correct?

I think I saw somewhere that he'd denied interest in favor of his chairmanship...although Wiki still has him listed under "Potential," so I'm not sure what to think.

That's where voter ID comes into play; if the left's whining about it is any indication, anyway.

Voter ID (unlikely) isn't going to stop as many Democrats from voting as you think, so I wouldn't count on a little stunt like that. Voter fraud is practically non-existent.

I'm looking forward to about 13 months of Tommy Thompson acting like he's going to run, then announce he won't. We all know it's going to happen.
